I always have a collection of French Wrought Iron Mirrors that show the art of the forge at its best.

Edgar Brandt is the first name that springs to mind when you think of French wrought iron work but there were many, Raymond Subes created some wonderful domestic work that go hand in hand with his architectural work.

Here in Britain we only gently felt the influence of style of the French forged work.

Britain seemed to be a bit more traditional in its approach to mirrors  and blacksmiths were employed more to shoe horses than create wonderful geometric designs in their forge.

In Britain we may have started the Arts and Crafts principles but the French kept it going right through the twenties with a new style we now call Art Deco that encompassed all the skills of previous generations with a bit of industrialisation .
